Re: Member Autobiographies


Hi everyone,

I am Karen and live near the base of Mt Bogong in the beautiful North East of Victoria - Australia. We are surrounded by mountains which have snow on them in winter and have had two bushfires (and one close call this summer) on them. This of course is not so good!
I have two lovely teenage daughters who cannot wait to get out of "the hole" they live in and get to the city - being Melbourne.
I have been married forever; well it seems that way, 27 years.
I am not going to put my age, but you should be able have a good guess with this information.
I am currently trying to obtain full time work at the local Visitor Information Centre where I am currently working as a causal. I have a Diploma of Tourism which has helped me get a rather interesting job last year at a palace in London.
However my real love is history, and I usually have my head in some historical book, which is why it is nice to talk to other like minded people here. One day I would like to complete some museum studies and work in a museum or gallery, or even start up one in our town.
I am involved in lots of local volunteering things, the town’s music festival, and the cancer support group which I help run. (I had cancer in 2004), I am also involved my church and its activities but do not push religion down peoples throats.
We go to our local country pub of a Friday night for a couple of chardonnay’s and then back home to become lounge lizards watching the Football – (AFL or course, go the mighty Pies), the Cricket, or Soccer on TV for the weekend!
That's my story so far.

Thought it was about time I put my own entry in here.

MY real name is Andrew, I'm a 21 year old Student, at my third year of University in Aberdeen, Scotland.

I'm studying History and Politics now, after doing a year of a physics degree. Love both my current subjects, hate the maths I had to do before!

I'm reasonably sporty, I ran a half marathon a couple of years ago and am training to run another this summer. I also love football (the real kind ), and I support Glasgow Celitc, my home team.

In terms of history i first became interested through playing certain videogames as a child. My interest grew throughout school. I twice went on trips abroad with my high school to the battlefields of World War One, which were some of the greatest experiences of my life. If anyone gets the chance to go, make sure you do!

My favourite periods of history are Medieval history and the Industrial revolution, although I try to look into as many other area's as possible to broaden my knowledge.

I also work at a McDonalds part time, where I am a duty manager. Believe it or not, the work isn't as bad as you might think!

Ouch! You'd be surprised actually, around 70% of my staff are students studying at University, and around a third of those are postgraduate students! We're hardly scrapping the barrel.

I know, I was only pulling your leg!! I used to take my son through the drive-thru when he was younger. Almost every time, the order was wrong. So, I took to telling my son that the folk working there were trained butler-monkeys dressed as people. It's quite amazing how long a five-year old will hold something so incredible as being true before that magical glimmer of doubt creeps in!!

Don't worry I know you were just having a laugh, and believe me I've heard far worse! Are butler monkey's really that incredible when compared with a fat man in red travelling round the whole world in one night and dropping off presents, a giant bunny that leaves chocolate eggs, a fairy that creeps into your room at night and buys your teeth, or babies being delivered by storks?
